Third Rail: An Eddy Harkness Novel

(as Rory Flynn)

A new wave of political corruption corrodes Boston. A seductive drug is killing the city’s best and brightest. Only Detective Eddy Harkness can stop it all. But he’s lost his gun, his reputation, everything. Dive deep into a gritty world of wronged heroes, corrupt politicians, and sinister kingpins, where your friends can’t be trusted, a sleepy town breeds deadly crimes, and nothing ever happens by accident.

“A terrific debut…impressive, stylish, sophisticated. Readers will want to see more of Flynn’s gritty Boston – and of Eddy Harkness.”

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Things heat up and bodies turn up in this high-powered police thriller.”

Library Journal

“Third Rail is an adrenaline-soaked tale of political corruption and personal redemption that never lets up. Eddy Harkness, the self-destructive Massachusetts narcotics detective at the novel’s center, is a worthy successor to Robert B. Parker’s Jesse Stone.”

— Sean Chercover, author of The Trinity Games

“Flynn’s high-octane prose and his loose cannon hero make this a series to watch.”

Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine

Third Rail was varying shades of fantastic, and just the kind of read that can quench a thirst you didn’t even know you had.”
